There have been claims about tests done with the Yak-130 as a Su-25 replacement, where the Yak-130 together with UCAVs operate over a battlefield and the Yaks use stand off weapons to engage point ground targets. The reports I heard suggested they thought the Yak needed more armour for the role, which would reduce its performance to below what the Su-25 can already achieve so the word is that they are looking at initially upgrading the Su-25 and then replacing it with a new dedicated CAS aircraft.
Hi garry do u, know any info what will replace it? will this will be a turbo prop design or jet powered?
